# LIGHTING DESIGN CALCULATION FOR CLASSROOM

## Cross section area of classroom = 69 = 54 m2, h = 3m

Lumens required = 54300 = 16200 lm

The below table is a reference table for calculating Utilisation factor for light fittings. It differs from model to
model and make to make. For just understanding the concept we are using a single reference table for all the
light fittings. The actual table is provided by the manufacturer and can be little different from the one below.

UTILISATION FACTOR TABLE FOR SHRRoom = 1.5
Reflectance code for classroom = 752
i.e. 70% reflectance for ceiling, 50% for wall and 20% for floor (General standard for white/light coloured
walls)
For R.I. = 1.8 and reflectance code = 752, Utilization Factor(U.F) = 0.66
For Classroom/Office Maintenance Factor = 0.8 (Standard)

## Where N = Number of luminaire required for given area

E = Average luminance over the horizontal working plane
A = Area of the horizontal working plane
n = Number of lamps in each luminaire
F = Lighting design lumens per lamp, i.e. initial bare lamp luminous flux
UF = Utilisation factor for the horizontal working plane
M.F. = Maintenance factor

## If we use Philips Green Perform LED Batten Of 40W

Lumen/Watt: 4000lm/40w
Lamp Colour: Neutral White 4000K
Colour Rendering Index >80
LIGHTING DESIGN CALCULATION FOR CONFERENCE ROOM
Cross section area of Conference Room = 69 = 54 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 54300 = 16200 lm

For R.I. = 1.8 and reflectance code = 752, Utilization Factor (U.F) = 0.66
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips Ultraslim Round LED Panel Light 22 W
Lumen/Watt: 1760 lm/22 W

## Lighting Design Calculation for Hall

Cross section area of hall = 313 = 93 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 93215 = 19995 ~20000 lm

For R.I. = 1.82 and reflectance code = 753, Utilization Factor (U.F) = 0.66
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips MASTER TL5 High Efficiency ECO 35 W
Lumen/Watt: 3650 lm/35 W
Colour Rendering Index 85

## LIGHTING DESIGN CALCULATION FOR STAIR CASE WIRING

Cross section area of stair case = 6.42.7 = 17.28 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 17.28215 = 3715 lm

For R.I. = 1.26 and reflectance code = 752, Utilization Factor (U.F) = 0.55
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips MASTER TL5 HIGH EFFICIENCY ECO 35 W
Lumen/Watt: 3650 lm/35 W\
Colour Rendering Index 85

## Lighting Design Calculation for Toilet WC

Cross section area of WC Toilet 1&2 = 1.4251.2 = 1.71 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 1.71215 = 367 lm

## For R.I. <0.75 Utilization Factor (U.F) table not applicable

M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips TL Miniature 8 W
Lumen/Watt: 410 lm/8 W
Colour Rendering Index 60

## Cross section area of WC Toilet 3&4 = 1.51.8 = 2.7 m2, h = 3m

Lumens required = 2.7215 = 580 lm

## For R.I. <0.75 Utilization Factor (U.F)

table not applicable
M.F. = 0.8 (Standard)
If we use Philips MASTER TL5 HIGH EFFICIENCY ECO 14 W
Lumen/Watt: 1350 lm/14 W

So we can use single LED tube in sharing for both the bathrooms.
Lighting Design Calculation for Toilet Washroom Area
Cross section area of Washroom = 66.6 = 40 m2, h = 3m
Lumens required = 49.5215 = 10642 lm

For R.I. = 1.05 and reflectance code = 752, Utilization Factor (U.F) = 0.49
